Brief description of Chötrul Düchen:

lord-buddha-18a

There are four main anniversaries of Lord Buddha in the Vajrayana tradition.

The first is Chötrul Düchen. “Düchen” in Tibetan, means the great occasions, marking the four great deeds of the Buddha; “Chötrul” means miracle. Chötrul Düchen falls on the First full moon of the Tibetan lunar year and celebrates the time when the Buddha is said to have displayed a different miracle each day, from the first to the fifteen day, to heighten faith and devotion of his disciples as well as to convince and inspire heretics.

On that day, it is said that the consequences of one’s positive and/or negative actions increase 10,000,000 times.
